Masks are meant to hide things, right?

My 12 yr old, Donny, had another project due this week at school.

This one had something to do with Nigerian culture.



So, after working all day, then hurrying to the middle school for a parents' meeting about 7th grade class choices for next year, Donny & I stopped by the craft store, Michaels, to pick up supplies.



We bought beads, model magic, feathers and ribbon.

And, when he got home from school the next day,
he made this...




It's a mask similar to one the Nigerian tribe spiritual leader would have.

He would wear it in ceremonies.

And, get this, his wife would have made it for him.



This gives me an idea.

Let's all make masks for the male in our life.

And make them wear it to church.
Or in bed.







I'd love to visit Africa.

I loved making masks for school projects. Doubt I could get my hubby to wear one, but maybe I could make one for myself- with lots of feathers and glitter. I have been assured that Michaels is opening a store on the Upper West Side(!).

Hey Don, can I borrow that to float down the river this year?

Mmmmh......I am not sure if my hubby would co-operate and wear a mask. He might wear a Batman or Zorro mask to bed? I know, I know, way to much information.

figures the wife would be responsible for making it and undoubtedly cleanup and "shopping" for the supplies just like in our culture :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog to welcome me to SITS. You SITS gals are true gems :-)

he is becoming mask material

Christina said...

Cool... Can we use the bones of our ex-lovers to make the mask? HaHa

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

Wow, another kid with talent. How much help did you give him? Cause that thing came out AWESOME. If he doesn't get an A+ on that there's just no justice in this world.

Justine :o )

Well, it doesn't exactly fit with our "Sheriff and the School Marm" schtick, but maybe I could get my husband to wear one. LOL

Your son did a great job on his mask - I love it.
